A ship Docked in Harbour cannot face the storms.

It means that a ship cannot reach its destination when it is docked at harbour. Docked ship means that it is safe from storms but eventually it is not moving. Philosophically a person cannot fight and win wars of life without moving in life. If a person thinks that he should not take risk and keep himself safe always, he cannot progress in life. It's not necessary that moving ahead always is risk. So Human beings should understand, change is natural process and if you are not moving with time and not taking risks then you could be safe from storms but it means you are docked at the harbour not moving in life.

The topic says that without any effort we cannot achieve anything in our life. If ship failed to sail in sea it can't get into it destination likewise if a man doesn't make an effort in his life he can't succeed. When person face a challenge or problem then only his strength comes up. If we are afraid about failure, we can't get success. Failure or success should be considered same. Let it be as our experience.

A ship docked in harbour cannot face storms...there is risk involved but no success. Of course to get success ship must face storm and reach its destination to find success.

Point: it is said that challenges make or break a person. But if someone doesn't take up the challenge at all, then his whole life will have meant for nothing. He won't learn anything from his success or failures and he won't be able to teach his sons/daughters anything of value.

Point: i feel that a ship at the harbor is like a frog in the well who is unaware of the outside planet.the strength o ship is found only when it must do your best before you die coz some day or another someone will replace the end i would like to say,"ships are safest at the harbors but it is not the place they are meant for.
